Recruits of Lima Company, 3rd Recruit Training Battalion, and Papa Company, 4th Recruit Training Battalion, learn about basic water survival Feb. 24, 2014, at the recruit training pool on Parris Island, S.C. Water survival qualification, which is a graduation requirement, includes swimming 25 meters, treading water for four minutes, jumping into water from a 10-foot tower and shedding heavy equipment while underwater. Recruits wear utility uniforms, including boots, throughout the evaluation. Lima and Papa Companies are scheduled to graduate April 25, 2014. Parris Island has been the site of Marine Corps recruit training since Nov. 1, 1915. Today, approximately 20,000 recruits come to Parris Island annually for the chance to become United States Marines by enduring 13 weeks of rigorous, transformative training. Parris Island is home to entry-level enlisted training for 50 percent of males and 100 percent of females in the Marine Corps.
